3 Shops With The Best Selection Of Liquor In The Waterfront

You find yourself in the V&A Waterfront and in need to stock-up on some wine and beer. You can head down to Pick n Pay in the shopping mall, but for a more curated experience try these alternatives:

Vaughan Johnson’s Wine Shop


The original. Vaughan Johnson opened his wine shop in 1992 and since purvey tourist and locals with a great selection of quality South Africa wines. The shop has shrunk over the last couple of years – due to crazy Waterfont rental costs – but the collection of great wines remain.

Cellar in the City


Situated in the Watershed close to the Exhibition entrance, Cellar in the City recreates the same sensorial experience of wine tasting at a wine estate, pairing 43 varietals of South Africa wine with local food tasting combinations.

The Bottle Bank


With over 150 different South African craft beer stocked, The Bottle Bank is your port of call when in search of a good brew. Conveniently situated in the V&A Food Market, you can stock-up on your drinks while grabbing something tasty to munch. Add bonus: They’re open on Sundays.
